U.S. Muslim leader calls on Obama Administration to “stop protecting” America’s enemy Saudi Arabia

Zuhdi JasserPhoenix, AZ (May 18, 2016) – American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) President Dr. Zuhdi Jasser has called on the Obama administration to stop protecting our enemies, after Obama’s veto threats over the Senate’s decision to unanimously approve the Justice against Sponsors of Terrorism Act that would allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia over its role in the terrorist attacks.

Dr. Jasser states: “This bipartisan legislation gives families of 9-11 victims a chance for the first time at vindication against the root cause of radical Islamists that attacked us on 9-11 and continue to attack us through ISIS and all the other forms of violent Islamism.”

“We at AIFD thank the U.S. Senate for its courage in tearing down the wall of protection that has long existed for the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the world’s leading disseminators of the radical Islamist cancer that is Wahhabism.”

Dr. Jasser called today on the Obama administration to back down from their veto threat against the unanimously passed Senate Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act and for the Obama administration to stop protecting our enemies and stop marginalizing Muslim reformers inside and outside the Kingdom.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest claimed that this legislation would put Americans at risk of legal retribution abroad yet he ignorantly ignores the years of “libel tourism” that has attempted through the courts to suppress the free speech of Americans and the West against Saudi Wahhabism and Islamism.

    Knowing how duplicitous the Saudis are, I wonder why we in Canada and the U.S. acknowledge them as “friends” and continue to do business with them. I also wonder why our government here in Canada, panders to the demands made by our Muslims immigrants and ignore bad behaviour by Muslim men against our Canadian (infidel) women.

      Rarely in today’s times of political & moral deceit have I read more honest words. Bravo to you Mary Taylor. I wish those in power take to heart your truthful remarks. Although in my heart I know this will not come to pass. Justice & courage seem to be words of the past. Political leaders change but little else changes. More hollow words from our supposed leaders. Our leaders lead from the back where it is safe, not at the front as they should.

    Dear Mr. Fatah,

    My name is Asad. I live in Karachi, Pakistan and have viewed several of your videos. I deeply respect your views and even agree with several of them and am currently reading your book “Chasing a Mirage: the Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State”. It is with this humbleness that I wish to ask you two questions.

    In your interviews, you always stress on the need to speak the truth regardless of the consequences. I thoroughly agree with you on this one. My questions are:

    1, What is the truth? Who determines the truth? Given that one man’s truth is another man’s lie (especially in the case of religious beliefs), how can we ever differentiate the truth from lies?

    2, Given the role of media in shaping public opinion and views in today’s world, how can we ever search for truth? Consider this: Pakistani media tells us that India instigates terror in Pakistan and that is our truth. Indian media tells Indians that Pakistan is trying to destabilize India and that’s their truth. The media in the west tells its viewers that Islam means terrorism and that’s their truth. So how can we ever know which is the “truth of all truths”?

    I look forward to your reply on these questions and I wish you lots of luck in all your future endeavours, especially in your battle against radicalization.

      Though it is not for me, but I would suggest by going through kalam sutta one can judge the truth.

      The Kalama Sutta states:

      Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing (anussava),
      nor upon tradition (paramparā),
      nor upon rumor (itikirā),
      nor upon what is in a scripture (piṭaka-sampadāna)
      nor upon surmise (takka-hetu),
      nor upon an axiom (naya-hetu),
      nor upon specious reasoning (ākāra-parivitakka),
      nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over (diṭṭhi-nijjhān-akkh-antiyā),
      nor upon another’s seeming ability (bhabba-rūpatāya),
      nor upon the consideration, The monk is our teacher (samaṇo no garū).

      Kalamas, when you yourselves know: “These things are good; these things are not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness,” enter on and abide in them.’
